This Tuesday Fordham hosts visiting scholar Cédric Giraud for tea and a workshop about twelfth-century charters. Dr. Giraud is a graduate of the École nationale des chartes in Paris and a leading expert on Anselm of Laon, twelfth-century intellectual life and spirituality, and the history of Notre Dame. He is the author of numerous books, articles, and scholarly editions, and is currently collaborating with the history department’s own Alex Novikoff on a project related to the Twelfth Century Renaissance. You can watch a recent presentation (in French) by Dr. Giraud’s at the prestigious College de France here.
The workshop will take place from 1:30-2:15pm in the Medieval Studies seminar room and will be followed by coffee/tea and cookies. For further information, please contact Dr. Alex Novikoff.
